Product Description

The Intel Core i3 processor with Intel HD Graphics offers an unparalleled computing experience. This revolutionary new architecture allows for new levels of intelligent performance and advanced media and graphics features—all while being energy efficient.

What makes this new architecture so revolutionary? Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and the improvements to Intel Smart Cache combine to create dynamic and adaptive performance. Add the integration of the memory controller and the graphics to the processor and the Intel Core i3 processor gets things done faster and more efficiently.

  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology offers more compute muscle while reducing wait time.
  • Intel Smart Cache improves responsiveness by providing faster access to data.
  • Intel HD Graphics is the ideal graphics solution for your everyday visual computing needs.
Performance has an immediate, perceptible impact on what you do on your PC. Accelerate your productivity, inspire your digital creations, and enjoy video smoothness and music quality on a system with the Intel Core i3 processor—the smart choice for home and office.

Key Features

  • Dual-Core Processing
    Runs two independent processor cores in one physical package at the same frequency.
  • Intel Smart Cache
    The shared cache is dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on workload. This efficient, dual-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from the fast cache, significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
    Delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of four threads for massive computational throughput. With Intel HT Technology, highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing their tasks sooner. With more threads available to the operating system, multitasking becomes even easier. This amazing processor can handle multiple applications working simultaneously, allowing you to do more with less wait time.
  • Integrated Memory Controller
    An integrated memory controller offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth.
  • Intel HD Graphics
    Enhanced video and 3D engine delivers smooth HD video playback and mainstream 3D gaming without the need for add-in video cards or decoders. Intel HD Graphics provides a suite of video processing, 3D, and software technologies designed to improve image quality and performance, including hardware-accelerated decode for Blu-ray dual-stream picture-in-picture and 3D support for Microsoft DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1. Supports full functionality of the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and display connectivity options, including HDMI and DisplayPort. Enables professional-grade audio capabilities with support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio multi-channel bitstreaming.
  • Intel Virtualization Technology
    Intel VT allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. For businesses, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
  • Intel-Designed Thermal Solution
    Includes a four-pin connector for fan speed control to help minimize the acoustic noise levels generated from running the fan at higher speeds for thermal performance. Fan speed control technology is based on actual processor temperature and power usage.
